World's Strongest Man Competition

This is Phil Pfister competing in the World's Strongest Man Competition here in Charleston, WV this week. I took some pictures today. I don't have time to post a lot of shots, but here's one of Phil throwing a keg over a very high bar. I'll put some more up tomorrow. It's pretty astonishing what these guys are able to do.

Things opened with the medley, which Hartikainen won, with Maris Rozenthals second and Sergei Konisok third.

Next up was the log lift for maximum weight: Koniushok won with 155 kg, followed by Rozenthal at 150.

Koniushok proved the contest name was for real as he broke the world record in the farmer’s walk, 120 kg/70 meters in 30.82 seconds.

The last event of the day was a truck pull, which produced close competition.  Unofficially, these are the top places and points after the first day:

Sergei Konishok 71 points
Janne Hartikainen 66.5
Marius Lalas 57
Maris Rozenthals 56
